Intergalactic trip in preparation

GAIA to SpaceEngine catalogs

Apparently GAIA has 1.8 billion stars now wow https://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-55178257 How much RAM would I need to import all 1.8 billion stars? I have a related question.  I went into my config file and it says that SE is limited to using 3 GB of VRAM and 8 GB of RAM?  Should I chang...

Unusual weather

asked your question on that forum, here was the response:

1943 on a regular basis [for hourly records], but physical records go back as far as 1889 [for hourly records], with a few missing months. Daily records go back to 1869.

Intergalactic trip in preparation

I set the warp for my ship to 20 that seems a tad high lol, I got to NGC 300 at 6.7 million light years away in under 30 seconds.  Is there a way to throttle the warp to a lower speed fast enough not to make the journey so quick? I dont want to go back and alter the .sss file again (by the way it's...

37798 NYC Central Park the records go back to 1869, so it's roughly 150. Do you really think that they checked the rain gauge every hour around the clock back in the 1800's?  Precipitation intensity was very rarely recorded before electronic sensors, which have been deployed for the last few decade...

Surely hourly rainfall hasn't been measured for 150 years?

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Thread

It is almost like they are trying to hold back panic by saying whatever they think people want to hear.

Meanwhile when it was found that this is airborne it should have been told, instead of being kept private.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Thread

37784 New research seems to show the vaccines aren't effective for long with the new variant.  My contacts in healthcare have been telling me they are even getting fully vaccinated patients into their hospitals and having to intubate them. (Moved from another thread) Well, I suppose I get to test w...

I am sure you have heard of the recent historic flooding in the NYC area?  Broke two hourly rainfall records that have stood for over 150 years....within 11 days of each other!  Schools without air conditioning are in trouble because they promote the growth of mold and so haven't been able to o...

Planets with potentially breathable atmospheres

37773 I've seen that some governments are considering using these to detect how many people are in individual habitations to see if they are breaking covid restrictions. CO 2  levels are certainly a good indicator for the risk of transmission, but having governments monitoring private homes this wa...

37771 So boost 20 is the limit for the most powerful warp engines in any ship in SE? I have ships that have a boost of 21, but you will leave the universe pretty quickly at that point, even if you are only traveling at 10km/s.  You can set the number to anything, but going beyond 20 is pretty much ...

Planets with potentially breathable atmospheres

37759 What did you use for this? I used a CO2 sensor connected to a Dallas 1-wire bus. It doesn't seem to be available anymore, but there should be many such sensors out there and different ways to log to a computer. Interesting.....I've seen that some governments are considering using these to det...
